September 26, 2014 Council Meeting @SUNY IT / Re: Campus Updates
« on: September 22, 2014, 02:30:59 PM »
Fredonia welcomed our new STEM librarian, Marilia Antunez in August. She comes to us from Boise State University where she was a Reference/Instruction Librarian. Prior to Boise State, she worked as the Science and Allied Health Librarian at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. She also has a M.A. in Gerontology. 

Several of our librarians teamed up with faculty from campus for a digital humanities project (I did a poster over the summer at SUNYLA about this). The project came about as a result of a series of meetings with Fredonia’s Digital Humanities Renga, formed in September 2013. Here is our project and more information:

The book, Supporting Digital Humanities for Knowledge Acquisition in Modern Libraries, edited by librarians Sara Parme, Scott Richmond, Katie Sacco, and Kerrie Wilkes, will be published by IGI Global in early 2015.

We've added Marilia Antunez to our team, who's coming to us from Boise State, in the position of Research and Information Literacy Librarian (80 % Generalist, 20% STEM) and look forward to her arrival in late summer.

Construction is going on all over campus in preparation for Fredonia's new Science Building which will open this fall. To help celebrate the opening Bill Nye The Science Guy is coming to campus as the keynote speaker.

Hello everyone!

We've hired a Digital Services Librarian in January (me) and librarian Cindy Yochym is now full-time adjunct.

Katie Sacco and I attended SUNYLA a few months ago and Scott Richmond and Kerrie Wilkes attended ACRL. Katie got a book chapter published in the book Revolutionizing the
Development of Library and Information Professionals: Planning for the Future.

We participated in the Big Read (Call of the Wild), which included distributing copies of the book and having events all over the area, and are gearing up for next year's (Emily Dickinson).

And on campus we're happy to welcome a new Provost, Dr. Terry Brown.
